Bouncing assembly

Question asked by Alan Thomason on Dec 29, 2014

I have created a very simple assembly for the purpose of better understanding how to approach a more complex problem.  I have a mechanism for which I wish to simulate an impact, but also settles together and then needs to simulate friction. 

 

So, a cube is shown dropping onto a plate.  I wish to have the cube bounce and have it come to rest.  I have tried all three solvers available, as well as various combinations of materials.  So far, I am unable to achieve both.  If anyone has any hints it would be most appreciated.

 

Thanks in advance...
